Visiting Artist Series

The Art Department is fortunate to have visiting artists throughout the year funded through the Vail Visiting Artist Fund. 

In recent years the Vail Visiting Artist program has enabled us to host well-known artists from a variety of disciplines. Visiting artists present their work in public lectures, demonstrations during the creation of an original work of art or through an exhibition in one of our galleries. Many visiting artists spend significant time with students through one-on-one meetings and critiques. We have had visiting curators put together group exhibitions of contemporary artists in our galleries bringing a variety of contemporary work to our campus.
